Heartbleed bug. First time I heard this, it was when one of my friend told us that we should change our student-account’s password on university’s websites. He said our university’s server uses OpenSSL (https) which is vulnerable to Heartbleed bug.
Beside that issue, I found many people also post article about Heartbleed, so I read some of them. It actually affects many popular websites, such as Facebook, Google, Yahoo, etc. It affects them who use OpenSSL. Heartbleed is something related to encryption as well.
